Tom Coburn: It's time for a constitutional convention

“That’s one of the things I’m going to be working on,” Coburn said of his post-congressional plans.

“I think we ought to have a balanced budget amendment, I think we ought to have term limits. I think we ought to put a chokehold on regulation and re-establish the powers of the Congress,” he said.

Coburn, a physician who is battling cancer, believes a constitutional convention would allow the legislative branch to seize back powers that have drifted to the presidency over the years.
